He isn't an official mascot. I doubt there is anyone, outside of our program, that is watching SBS on TV or at games that knows he isn't an official mascot.

All outsiders know is that there is a chicken sitting on a tacky-ass, rigged-up, child's toy that appears to be the official mascot of USC. Why do they think that? B/c he's on the sideline of every game.

Therefore, to most people, SBS represents the University of South Carolina. And if it represents us/me then I want to it be the very best. Kudos to those students for recognizing a need. SBS is a badass mascot and deserves better than what he has.

I hope we get SBS the greatest, most swagged-out, ride in all of sports. I hope he comes out in the f-ng flying Delorean from Back to the Future II. I hope it has ground-glow, spinning rims, and shoots off laser beams and fireworks as the team runs out to 2001.

Have you seen what other mascots are rolling in? Tom, the Tiger at Memphis (f-ing Memphis mind you) has a sound proof trailer. UGA has an air conditioned dog house. Mike the Tiger at LSU has a multimillion dollar habitat. I could go on and on.

When it comes to things that represent our university we should do things right, or not at all. Obviously, these students think the same way.
To be fair I don't think we need a multi million dollar habitat to care for a rooster.

Speaking of sir big spur, how come he never crows? I don't think it would be against any rules. Is there a way to make a rooster crow? Would probably make the fans go nuts.

So we should give him a bump of coke at half time to jack him up for the second half and rile everybody up.

I have definitely heard him crow during baseball games. In between pitches is really the only time it's quiet enough to hear him. There was one game he was particularly vocal. We were about 6 sections away and still heard him.

I think people will be more interested in this than in the practice facility this offseason.

Roosters crowing depends on the breed and the "personality" of the bird. My parents have a rooster that does not shut-up. Every five minutes he sounds off, it seems like. The rooster I have only crows when the sun goes down.
